Farage: Council have pulled up the drawbridge in UKIP foster row

"We are also calling for an independent enquiry on a national scale, to find out the extent to which this is happening elsewhere. From evidence now emerging, it would seem that Rotherham may be the tip of an iceberg of politically-motivated discrimination in children's services," says UKIP leader Nigel Farage. UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has dimissed the statement from Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council over the foster care row.

He said: "Councillor Pearson's statement says nothing in six paragraphs. The Council have simply pulled up the drawbridge and refused to discuss the issue. There is no apology to the foster carers for the slur on their character, nor any indication that their situation will be reinstated.

"It is not acceptable for the Council to prevaricate on this, we want to see action now. Ordinary people all over the country – and most senior politicians, with the notable exception of David Cameron – are absolutely incensed about this case. Rotherham Council should apologise immediately, and heads should roll.


"Joyce Thacker should surely go, along with any other senior managers who have endorsed this bigoted and discriminatory policy.

"We are also calling for an independent enquiry on a national scale, to find out the extent to which this is happening elsewhere. From evidence now emerging, it would seem that Rotherham may be the tip of an iceberg of politically-motivated discrimination in children's services."
